I think it's safe to say that winter appears to be handed things over to spring, finally. I have even been able to get out into the back yard to clean up all the garbage that blows into our yard over the winter months.
It's a whole lot drier right now than it was last year at this time. I wasn't able to work in the back part of the yard until at least May as the yard was under about 4 to 6 inches of water. I've been out there working in my sneakers.
Heading To Chubby's To Get My Fishing License
I'm anticipating an awesome year of fishing, to make up for last year, hopefully. I'm sure you remember what a strange and wet year we had here in New Brunswick and many other places. I don't think we saw normal water levels until about August.
Even though the water was high which made fishing a bit tougher Jamie and I still had great fun fishing from his canoe and catching smallmouth bass and chain pickerel in the Saint John river around the Jemseg area.
Some more good news is our son finally got a job offer in his field which has allowed him to move out of the house. The sad part is that he had to move to Saskatchewan for the job. Some more good news, he loves the Oxbow and his new job.
He is paying us back for the financial support we've given him for the past few years so I may just have a little extra money this year to help with gas for fishing trips and maybe even for a couple of tournaments.
I can't believe I've fished for 51 years now and I've never been in a tournament.
Oh better get my butt in gear, Jenny's just getting ready to head off to work I want to leave with her and then head to Chubby's over on Killam Dr. to get my salmon fishing license.
I always get a salmon license, just in case we get a chance to get the fly rods out to hit places like the Cains and Quarryville, two of my favourite spots. Maybe Casey, Jamie and I will get a chance for a fly fishing trip for a few Atlantic salmon together, we've never done that yet.
